  1. Here is a fantastic, deep, and nuanced review of this work at the LA Review of books by a professor of Russian and Comparative literature It delves into the background of the authors and the context they were writing in I cannot hold a candle to it and highly recommend giving it a read.With that being said I do have some thoughts on the experience of reading the book This was my first foray into Soviet science fiction It certainly had a different feel from its Western cousin It was overtly poli [...]

  2. Asks some great questions about humanity and civilisation but overly slow and slim on plot I guess back when it was written would have created of a controversial publication, especially in Russia.

  3. Many parts of this dense, philosophizing sci fi magnum opus were amazing, near comparable to a modern day Tolstoy The Doomed City is the bildungsroman of a very arrogant character named Andrei and his journey from Earth to a garbage collector in the Experiment The Experiment is the Experiment is it a planet a fish tank for aliens another dimension new galaxy Who knows , to an investigator whereat he loses his moral superiority in service to violence and The State , to an editor, to a state minis [...]

  5. This is one of my favorite novels, of which I once wrote an amateur English translation A city outside of time and space that obeys bizarre and changing laws of nature is populated by people taken from different countries and different times from the 20th century The main character is a graduate student of astronomy taken from Leningrad in 1951 Originally a committed Communist, after encountering other characters, from a German Nazi to a Japanese liberal, he gradually loses his ideological rigid [...]

  6. I don t know how much I enjoyed reading this, but it was certainly interesting Imagine if Dhalgren was written by Kafka, and maybe that gives an idea of what this book is like 2016 reading challenge a book originally written in another language

  7. A great novel that not many people to seem to be aware of Amazing characters, plot, setting and writing Loved every page.The Red Building was also a lot like the Red Room in Twin Peaks in a way.

  9. Not their best science fiction novel How can one top Roadside Picnic but a masterpiece of taking down the absurdity of the Soviet system and showing it for how ridiculous it was No wonder they had to hide the manuscript for 16 years after it was finished This book covers the whole kit and kaboodle for Stalinist governance, from the idea of changing nature of the human race from greed to cooperation, racing from insane action to insane action for the sake of progress, the forced unconditional bel [...]

  11. Written and then shelved due to the great subversive potential danger it implied during the Soviet era this novel took decades to be published and then further time to be translated into English An artificial city is the setting of an international group of volunteers who labor away for a never defined experiment and as the protagonist gets promoted in society he is exposed to and bizarre events Honestly, it reads as well today during the breakdown of neoliberalism as it did when finally publi [...]

  12. There are some very bitter, unpleasant lessons to be taken from The Doomed City and that fucking Red House is just spooky and nightmarish as hell.Yet the book manages to be so frequently humorous.Excellent translation, and a fantastic read Roadside Picnic remains my favorite Strugatsky novel, but The Doomed City has so much political meat to it how relevant it is to our current political climate is frightening.

  15. The Doomed City is a great, thrilling, and philosophical book I think everyone would be interested in reading it.The book is the longest work than any other Strugatsky s books, as Boris explained in the afterword that it took three years for him and his brother to plan it they finally wrote it for another three years But it was not published until sixteen years later, due to the dangerous time in the 1970s.The book contains some allusions of the Soviet Union, where the people behind the Experime [...]

  16. The first indication that something is seriously wrong in the city is the arrival of the baboons They appear without warning at the garbage dump by the hundreds, rapidly fanning out through the rest of the city and wreaking havoc wherever they go.Where did they come from Nobody knows Why are they here Nobody knows What can be done about them Very little, apparently after attempts to kill or capture them fails, the government institutes a policy of adopting a baboon and caring for it.Such is the [...]

  18. The City of the Doomed or The Doomed City who knows is a very philosophical read and probably one of the most mystically, spiritually and politically charged of the Strugatski brothers works I am deeply convinced that it can be very difficult to understand for many Westerners speaking of Europe which might explain the absence of a good translation in English I read it in Russian and in Bulgarian translation I have to say that in translation it looses a lot of its charm and a great part of its am [...]

  19. Incredible how this book can show in such detail how the human mind and society work Progressing in many different layers it can be a great science fiction story, explanation of the socialism experiment , the idea of the otherness culture, whose mere existence is considered a threat, and so many other things A must read.
